High Holiday Services
From Selichot to Simchat Torah, together we leave the ordinary to relive the birth of the world, reflected in the new selves that we birth during the high holidays. Self-examination is a mighty task; that is why our tradition has us do the work together.
Please renew your membership or become a member now by visiting the Membership page.
For non-members, tickets to all five major High Holiday services are $300/person. You can also purchase tickets for a specific service for $75/person. If you order tickets, you can pick up the tickets (reserved under your name) at the services. Tickets for full-time students are complimentary.
To buy tickets for the High Holidays, see the High Holiday Tickets page. No one will be turned away on account of inability to pay; please contact Administrator Cindy Freedman (firstname.lastname@example.org) for information.
